Zynaps

Postby English Invader » Sat Feb 28, 2015 1:42 pm

This is a game I discovered recently. Ultra hard side-scrolling shoot-em-up by Hewson.

I find it both relaxing and addictive. At the moment, I'm trying to reach the second high score of 30,000 but the highest I've got so far is about 18,000. The 100,000 top score seems a long way off.

I guess I find the game relaxing because it's repetitive whereas with other shooters like Blood Money the surroundings and enemies change quite often which keeps you on your toes a lot more.

Anyone else here like this game?

I used to play it years ago. Also Starray :) I got pretty high up on starray considering I am basically useless at games :lol: I think after a while the graphics started to disappear so you couldn't really complete it :?

You know, this is one of the first games I played on the ST.. and certainly one of my faves. However, I'm so bad at it! LOL
Made a video to prove how terrible my gaming skills are ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zTHgT9OcdWM ) buy perhaps I should never advertise such qualities? :roll:
Still, I regard it as an Atari ST classic myself. Beautifully made game. Just darn hard!

Hold the button pressed when collecting these Symbols, which the dead enemies leave. --> Extra Weapons
1st comment in this video explains it quite good.
